Daisies light breeze clear nose urge to sneeze.
Walking out without a jacket.
Skin showing, sun.
I want spring.
But winter hasn’t even come.

His poetry springs and rings forth
In presence of women.
In the absence of women
It slips into hybernation
Only to be awakened by women.

pretenses flow like wine
a river through your blackened insides
roses bloom for spring
“will there be any at your grave site?”
a thought that plagues all men

On Making a Move

He’s sexier in spring,
tan, toned, robust with purpose.
Alas, soil and sunlight
keep him from bed
til exhaustion descends.
Perhaps at dawn.

rise like smoke
four o’clock in the morning
tender/loving, raw/unnerving
not much else in common
